Strongback 12 w/ 16" seat and brakes
Bought for son age 9 as a transport chair. It's great for this purpose. Seems to be very well made - the frame is like a high quality bicycle frame and all of the features work well. The brake handles that lock at the grip levers are really useful. I also agree with the other reviewers' comments.
Fabulous lightweight wheelchair
The Strongback 24 is superior to traditionally designed wheelchairs my family has used. In the past. Its ergonomic design offers many benefits such as: easy to use foot rests with a lift and swing motion rather than clumsy clamps; brake controls where the user can easily find them at the same level as the bottom seat cushion rather than lower down; an ergonomic back rest allowing the user to sit straighter and more comfortably; cushioned handles for pushing; an increased ability to maneuver; and last but not least a superior light weight which allows for an easier self propel as well as for pushing. I am a small woman of 110 pounds. Switching to this wheelchair has made me able to take my 91 year old father out and about without great difficulty. And best of all, my father finds the chair easy to propel, thus providing some independence given that he is wheelchair bound. Thank you!
We have tried 5 different brands of chairs and NONE can compare with Strongback. The ergonomic handles are most comfortable on the hands. Chair is light, made extremely well, and the 12 inch tires easily allow me--I am 70--to push my wife around on concrete, tile, gravel AND on the sandy beach we like to visit! My father taught mike "buy cheap...buy twice." I bought cheap 5 times and got what I paid for--cheap. The 6th was Strongback and it is worth twice what we paid! We are both wonderfully happy with our Strongback Mobility Chair! THANKS!!!
Strongly recommend the Strongback!!!!
We have the Strongback for my husband and he is extremely impressed with the comfort. After using a traditional chair for three weeks, he truly appreciates sitting in the Strongback! I love how light weight it is - I can lift it myself to put in the car. Also, the turning radius is great and it folds easily. GREAT product!!
I am so happy with this wheelchair!
My mother is so happy with the comfort of this chair. It is literally 50 pounds lighter than the chair provided by the nursing home. She also likes that it's blue and not standard black. The back support is terrific. She likes to "walk" her chair with her feet, rather than using her hands on the big wheel. Self-propelling. Because she is a tiny person, she does have a bit of trouble reaching the floor with her feet as well as she did with the older chair, but it's so much lighter, she prefers this chair. Thank you, Strongback Mobility!
Thanks so much for your assistance. I wouldn't have been able to be in the march without it! Love the chair! Very comfortable!
This chair was extremely comfortable from the first moment I sat in it and throughout the day. I have back issues and I could feel the lumbar support right away - Thank you!
